With the increasing nastiness in political campaigns
in recent years, voters have become disillusioned.
No wonder people are turned off politics.
No wonder elected officials are held in such low esteem.
Leadership is about having the guts to take on your opponents directly in a tough, but accurate way.
Competition between parties, between visions of the future - is at the core of our political process. But
that doesn't mean elections have to continue being mudslinging matches.
